2014 Holiday Gift Guide: For The Home

We love a beautiful home and are always excited to learn about a well designed item worth more than its sale price. This home gift guide focuses on great bargains and staple pieces, perfect for that difficult person on your shopping list.  

A simple, creative and fun gift for anyone on your shopping list, the Hinterland Trading Air Plant Set is a collection of 10 unique air plants that require very little attention and liven up your home. With just a little sunlight and a few sprays of plant food, most of these varieties grow to more than twice their size, some blooming multiple times. Of the air plants available online, these always arrive undamaged, watered, and in the best packaging.  


This contemporary lamp is a staple in the Hit City home. Handmade by friend Molly Ryan in her Highland Park studio, the Ninoshea Harlequin Lamp features heavy a walnut base, beautiful filament bulb, and a classy power cord you don't need to hide.  Great as a bedside lamp or dinner table centerpiece, the Harlequin Lamp is one of our favorites and never fails to receive compliments.  

Modern design and high functionality make this both a seasonal and useful gift. The Natural Living Acacia Wood Nut Bowl is expertly made from a sustainable, richly grained wood prized for its density, hardness and uniquely patterned glow. The stainless steel nutcracker is effortless to use and rests gracefully on the bowl.  Pair with walnuts for a particularly thoughtful combination. 

We can't say enough about these Baxton Studio classic accent chairs, which are an attractive and more affordable take on the Eames Eiffel chairs from Herman Miller. They're easy to assemble, with a soft wide shell and sturdy lightweight wooden legs, and fans probably already know these bucket seats are surprisingly comfortable, not to mention sexy, and will instantly enhance any living or work space.  

The unique and beautiful Stadler Form OTTO Fan is a powerful, quiet and attractive edition any any home or office. It features an African Sapele wood frame, 5 steel blades and 3 speeds. We have one of these in the studio and it keeps the Hit City family cool all summer.
